I bought a new computer and I need to download the Netgear Genie for my Windows 10 computer, since I have a Netgear router.

There is no such thing as a Netgear Genie application for Windows 10.

 

You can go to the top of this page and download the manual for your specific model of router (Downloads).  Read the instructions for configuration.  You connect to the router configuration pages via a computer using a web browser application (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.).  Your chance of success is significantly higher if your connection between the computer and your router is via direct ethernet cable.  Avoid attempting to configure via a Wi-Fi connection.

My setup: Comcast -> Netgear CM2050V -> Netgear R7800 (Voxel V1.0.2.97.1SF)

Don't use crappy apps. A simple browser and the router's Web UI at http://192.168.1.1 is more than enough

Routing: NETGEAR RAX43 - Firmware: v1.0.11.112 (1 Gbps down, 50 Mbps up)
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)

Netgear is trying to kill the genie. It has broken some of the key links to it.

 

First look on the support pages for your device:

 

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the downloads for your hardware.

That page will also have any software, firmware and drivers for your device, if they exist.

If that fails, the last sighting of the genie that worked was here:

 

genie Landing Page | Apps | Discover | Home | NETGEAR

 

The genie is a valuable addition to the toolkit that does things that are more complicated, or even impossible, with the browser graphical user interface (GUI). (Try creating a "map" of your powerline devices in the GUI.) It is a shame that Netgear tries to force us all to use its hopeless mobile apps.

Not quite the whole story.

I use the Windows application pretty well every day.
